Oysters with Grapefruit Granita Recipe
Oysters with Grapefruit Granita
makes 1 dozen
Slightly sweet citrus granita is a refreshing accompaniment for oysters on the half shell. If you are unsure about what type of oysters to get, ask your fishmonger for a seasonal recommendation.
- 1 cup (8 ounces) grapefruit juice
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1 dozen small oysters, freshly shucked*
- Mint leaves, thinly sliced
- Combine grapefruit juice, sugar, and salt in medium bowl or sealed jar. Vigorously whisk or shake together to combine. Pour into a shallow pan and freeze for one hour.
- Remove partially frozen mixture and scrape with a fork to make grated ice. Return to freezer for two hours, taking it out and scraping with a fork every 30 minutes or so.
- Just before serving, spoon granita over each oyster and garnish with fresh mint.
- * Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness.
